Title: Bhagavan Ramana's teachings
Post by: Subramanian.R on March 05, 2010, 02:26:14 PM
Arthur Osborne further writes in his reminiscences:

Although doctrinally uniform, the replies of Bhagavan were very much 'ad hominem',
varying considerably with the questioner.  A Christian missionary asked:  "Is
God personal?"  Without compromising with the doctrine of Advaita, Bhagavan
tried to make the answer easy for him.  "Yes.  He is always the First Person,
the "I" ever standing before you.  If you give precedence to wordly things, God
seems to have receded into background.  If you will give up all else, and seek Him
alone, He alone will remain as the "I", the Self.

Dear srkudai,

Yes. I agree.  Bhagavan Ramana has got only one medicine, the Hill-medicine, as He
Himself says.  But He gives with honey to some one, and with water to some one else
and with milk to a third person.  As a mother, He knows what is best for the child and
in what manner, it should be given.
